Honey Roasted Peanut Butter

I’ve been obsessing about honey roasted peanut butter since my trip to Whole Foods last summer.

It might have something to do with watching the honey roasted peanuts slowly grind into peanut butter into my dish below, or the fact that it’s honey roasted peanut butter and well, it’s a gem spread all over toast with a drizzle of honey on top.

I love it.

In my early on days of blogging I made honey roasted cashews. Since the cashews are simply ah-mazing why not do a similar thing to peanuts and grind them up to make peanut butter? Naturally.

I wanted to make a dairy-free version so I swapped the butter out for coconut oil and obviously the cashews for peanuts but everything else is the same. You will need is a little honey, {real} maple syrup, {unrefined} coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. All those and peanuts and some grapeseed oil annnd you will have peanut butter in no time.

Soooo what are we waiting for? Let’s turn some nuts into butter.

Once the nuts have cooled, I slide them off of the sheet pan into a bowl and add in a quarter cup of granulated sugar.

Now these nuts, oh man, you could seriously stop right here and snack on these all day long, but I have other plans.

Honey Roasted Peanut Butter l www.SimplyScratch.com process

Take 2-1/2 cups of honey roasted peanuts, leaving the remainder to snack on, and throw them into the bowl of your food processor or high-powered blender.

Pulse them a few times and with the processor running, pour in the quarter cup of grapeseed oil.

Once combined, scrape down the sides and blend until your ears bleed and you’ve made smooth peanut butter.

Peanut butter toast is a childhood favorite of mine. I remember my mom making me toast and she would spread peanut butter immediately onto the hot toast and the peanut butter would melt to an ooey mess. To this day I make my toast the same way.

I love the texture of homemade peanut butter. And I especially love the sweetness from the honey and maple syrup. My life may never be the same.

I’m a sucker for good peanut butter toast. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to toast some bread.

ps… I could eat this by the spoonful… with chocolate chips.

    I usually never add oil when I make PB. . . Any reason for this? Should I be adding a little oil. . . for texture?

    • Laurie McNamara replied: — March 17th, 2014 @ 11:51 am

      I do it to thin it out but if you like a coarse pb then you can of course omit the oil 🙂

    Looks amazing!! If you’re the solo PB eater in your house, how long do you think a jar will last in the fridge?

    • Laurie McNamara replied: — March 17th, 2014 @ 11:50 am

      Hi Robyn! Peanut butter has a pretty long shelf life. I think a year is what I’ve read before. Technically pb doesn’t have to be stored in the fridge, I do it because it prolongs shelf life and slows down the oil separation. I just heat it up really quick before spreading 🙂

    Hi Lori,

    Could this be done substituting almonds? (Almond butter is so expensive to buy in the stores). Looks yummy. Thanks for sharing!

    I have still yet to make my own peanut butter, even though I know how easy it is. Unfortunately, the good-looking jars in places like Whole Foods and Trader Joes always win out over my laziness! I definitely need to give this a try once I get to my new place and get a more powerful food processor.

    Honey roasted butter was my favorite as a kid – my mom used catch me spoon deep in the jar. I’ve never made it from scratch before…and now my mom won’t yell at me for eating it with a spoon!

    Can I sub the maple syrup for an equal, additional amount of honey? I know it’s unAmerican, but I dislike maple syrup, a lot.

    • Laurie McNamara replied: — November 24th, 2014 @ 3:44 pm

      Go on and give it a go! I haven’t tried it so I can’t be certain… But I’d think it would be fine

    Holy moly this is so easy and there are a few other taste layers besides just peanuts. And yes, I did eat some with a spoon. 😉
